change on climate change. lisa jackson announced she will be stepping down. hopes were high for significant progress fighting climate change especially in the form of cap and trade. the e.p.a. is seeing some successes including the ruling greenhouse gases are with the clean air act. her tenure ended with actions to defend them with challenges with republicans in congress and at times, the obama white house. we know one reason the non-white vote was on the rise, it's not just birthrate. the reason is not because the black population is increasing, but because the black turnout rate is increasing. latino and asian voters rate was lower than their share, black voters make up 12% of the eligible electorate and 13% of the actual turn out in november. they use republicans to suppress the vote to energize black voters. want to find out what my guests know now that they didn't? >> the black voting. >> proof we don't coordinate before the show. >> about that, i'll add that it didn't begin with 2008. it began in 2000, the black turnout rate jumped up. it's been increasing since then.
